Description: I am surprised this Taverna has not been reviewed before as it is long established, always full and really good value. It is located in a small side street just behind the harbour road, next to Lisa's Place and the Harbour Lights Bar. It is a traditional family run taverna which cooks either fresh for you, from the Souvlaki Grill or from a number of pre-cooked dishes which you can view in the kitchen. The prices are really good too. And because it is always busy it has a good atmosphere - Ok the views aren't as good as the harbour side, but you can eat well here for value and then go for a walk and drink at the harbour later.

Alexandros is "hidden" in a quiet narrow street near the port and we saw it by accident. It looked more home-like and we decided to give it a try - we were pleasantly surprised when the waitress offered us to see the cooked food before we order it. All the cooked meals from the menu were displayed in large baking... More

After reading several reviews about this place we decided to give it a visit. It had been a rainy day so the plastic side shutters were down to create a small area for dining but was so cramped. We were all on top of one another almost knocking elbows. The man himself is very welcoming but the food let him... More

Before we'd even eaten anything, the delicious aroma of grilled meats coming from Alexandros' kitchen stopped us in our tracks; we had a feeling we were onto a winner... and we were right. The most perfect lamb on the spit and chicken in lemon sauce that both melted in the mouth and were bursting with flavour, served with the best... More

Nice traditional taverna tucked into a back street taverna. We had Lamb Kleftiko and Chicken cooked with garlic & lemon. Lamb Kleftiko on Paxos never lived up to my high standards but this was very tender. Nice jug a house wine.

I've been coming to Alexandros for thirteen years and have eaten here dozens of times. It is family run, incredibly welcoming and is wonderful every time. This tucked away family-run restaurant serves up a huge choice of traditional Greek dishes and is hard to beat for value. A more welcoming restaurant is hard to find.

We went here and ordered 2 gyros, one tomato salad and one burger. The tomato salad was 2 EUR for 2 slices of tomato which were horrible at taste. When we said we won't pay for them, the manager told us that "he knew they weren't fresh". The gyros was lousy, it had stale vegetables in it as well. The... More
